Where the statute of a state provided that during the absence of a party and all the members of his family, notice of a suit might be posted upon the front door of his "usual place of abode," held that a notice posted upon a house seven months after it had been vacated by the defendant and his family, and while they were residing within the Confederate lines, was not posted upon his "usual place of abode," and that a judgment founded on such defective notice was absolutely void.
